It’s as if I stumbled into Never Neverland. When I arrived at Laguna Lodge eco resort my breath was instantly stolen from me. I contemplated pinching myself to make sure that I was indeed awake and that what lay before me like a majestic treehouse along the lakeshore was in fact real.
Everything about Laguna Lodge screams “sustainable luxury”. Its wooden, palm and volcanic stone design is inspired by its beautiful natural surroundings (did I mention that the Lodge poetically keeps company with a trio of volcanoes?) Nestled in its privately owned 100 acreage of land with Mayan trails to explore, the lodge even boasts an award winning organic restaurant!
What more could anyone ask for?

To tempt you further… The food is deliciously outstanding! The award winning Zotz restaurant delivers only the highest quality of local organic vegetarian food (even my carnivorous boyfriend didn’t miss eating meat for a second during our stay). The produce is handpicked from the Lodge’s organic garden and is delivered on foot. Farm to table dining is a trend that is taking many major cities by storm at the moment and Laguna Lodge is no exception.
Laguna Lodge is a haven for creatives. I couldn’t have asked for a more inspiring, tranquil and relaxing setting to write my blog posts. As someone who is on the go all the time seeking out adventure and activities, it is a treat to be forced to slow down, calm my thoughts and open my senses to nature’s offerings. The clamour of city life starts feeling like a distant memory. How heavenly!

I must confess that I am no stranger to a hammock. Like the rest of the world’s population, I have taken to a hammock like a duck to water so I am forever on the hunt for the perfect suspended reclining device. It is therefore my pleasure to share with you that, without doubt, the mother of all hammocks lies within the dense tree tops of Laguna Lodge’s 100 acre nature reserve. But you have to earn this baby! I hiked up the steep mayan steps and trotted along the mountainous ridge line to find this secret spot of pure relaxation. My reward was a spectacular view of the volcanoes like a water colour painting in front of me and a cooling breeze to rock me gently to sleep.

There are only six suites at the lodge to maximise absolute peace and privacy. It really is the perfect romantic getaway for couples. The spacious rooms are beautifully decorated with intricate woven textiles and indigenous antiques. I slept like a baby in their hand hewn king bed!
I also have to mention that the service at Laguna is 5 star. The staff are some of the friendliest people I have ever met and go above and beyond to make sure your stay is both comfortable and memorable.

To this mix of delights, add the free use of kayaks provided by the lodge (a perfect vehicle for a picnic lunch at one of the many unspoiled beauty spots around the lake) and there you have it – happiness wrapped up in Laguna Lodge!
I hope you enjoyed my photo diary!
